Value for Money

We have been using 3PL Central for nearly 5 years now. Over that time we have been able to utilize the technology provided to greatly grow our business. The functionality has a wide scope of offerings and for the most part they work very well. We utilize 3PL Central as our Warehouse Management Software and rely on it heavily for small parcel receiving, inventory management, and order organization. We use a separate, stand-alone pack verification/manifesting/shipping software that we like much better than the modules offered by 3PL Central for those specific tasks.

The visibility for our customers is critical and most find it works well despite the UI being slightly hard to navigate.

Our biggest hurdle has been to take full advantage of the new feature releases because of the change in protocol/process that it would require. There is definitely an advantage to new releases and features, but they aren't always really easy to implement.

Pros

- Web Based
- Broad scope of features
- Constant updates and feature releases
- Up-time is near 100%
- Good support (when you can get it)
- Handles wide (possibly unlimited) product types

Cons

- Support is very slow and often inexperienced requiring multiple responses to get a resolution
- Most additional features are a le Cart so the price can increase depending on features
- High traffic days make the system slow (although they have been addressing this)
- UI can be hard to navigate at first and specifically for customers
- Doesn't play well with mobile (we've been told this is in the works)

Advice to Others

Depending on the transactional volume this may be a great option. We like it and have had a hard time finding a replacement that matches the bang for the buck.

This is specifically for a company doing third party logistics. The requirements to compete in that market are high and varied. So to find an inexpensive workable solution is tough. 3PL fits the bill.

Pros

Lots of functionality. Lots of add-ons if you need them. Most of them are for free.

Cons

UI is pretty old school. It's not super pretty or slick. Some of the functionality is a little clunky and you have to take extra steps to do something that we wish was just a click of a button.

Advice to Others

Fully Loaded, It's worth it for the money. It's not a Manhattan Group software, but for the little guys, it's a great software.

The ease of training new employees, the ability to connect to most any 3rd party shopping cart, the EDI functionality. The auto-billing feature is an enormous time-saver. I really appreciate that 3PL Central is also looking to improve their software and will take input from their clients as to updates and changes that would be beneficial.

Likes Least

3PLCentral is constantly making improvements and updates to make the system more efficient, user friendly and to meet the changing demands of the 3PL market. That being said, their documentation and notices surrounding the updates could improve dramatically.

Recommendations

Map out your entire process and then review how 3PL Central mandates the process to be performed. I would suggest being open to changing your own process as generally speaking 3PL Central methodology is clean with little to no redundant actions. There are cost savings relative to labor to be found - if you look.

API integrations to shopping carts & OMS's, automated capture of billing events, automated email notifications, FTP export automation, client-facing visibility & inventory related reporting, RF functionality is good not great, customer support is very responsive.

Likes Least

SOAP APIs need better documentation (hopefully improved in new REST APIs), system can be slow during peak times (Monday mornings), need more focus on B2C pick & pack functionality (pick strategies, replenishment, location-based allocation options).

Recommendations

Run through your workflow on demos, don't be afraid to adjust your workflow to software capabilities instead of the other way around.

Global Warehouse Management

Product Quality

Product Quality
Quality

Online automation tools effectively decrease the amount of one-on-one time that warehousing employees spend speaking with clients via telephone or in person, without sacrificing customer relationships in the slightest. On the contrary, manufacturers and other vendors actually feel more loyal to a warehousing company when they are notified about updated inventory information and shipment statuses in real-time, day or night.

3PL Central’s web-based management system saves warehousing companies money by doing away with long-term contracts. Instead, users pay only for the features they need. Users can also add and remove warehouses from their internal system with just a few clicks of the mouse, and they can use 3PL Central’s proprietary “Billing Wizard” to track all billable activity and charges by customer.

Pros

3PL Central provides a great value for warehousing professionals

Cons

The platform's features are very industry-specific.

Would not hesitate to recommend.

Pros

Very well suited for 3PLs that manage many clients across many industries, need retail replenishment and EDI compliance, have basic kit assembly needs and ship primarily cases/pallets. Customer support is very responsive and accommodating. Integration for data exchange is very tight. Pricing is reasonable and there is no nickel & diming that is common among software companies. Web-based SaaS is great. Reporting is well rounded & customizable.

Cons

Needs some more development on individual unit pick/pack capabilities for high SKU count & high volume operations but otherwise very versatile for both B2C and B2B 3PLs.

I would highly recommend this program, in fact we have already sold it off to one of our own customers that is how good it is, in less than 60 days of usage.
3PL has allowed us to create a benefit for our customers, and has strategically positioned our company in the right place for future growth.

Pros

The implementation process was seamless, it allowed us for an extremely efficient transition from our old system. The site was very easy to navigate, and very self teachable. 3PL has allowed us to bring more efficiency internally, which allowed us to use our existing staff to take on more business rather than adding the added labor expense

Cons

After numerous demos, 3PL's SaaS package is by far the best you can find and with pricing that was well within our small companies budget.
No need to buy and install software, being able to access from any computer, upgrades included. We were shipping our first orders the day they gave us access.
The billing tool is the best to make sure you capture every costs, if your big enough, this tool is probably a profit center in itself.

Pros

We were looking for an alternative to a slow, cumbersome WMS system for managing our 3PL fulfillment services business. After reviewing and demoing over a dozen options, we found that 3PL offered the the best selection in functionality to meet our needs.
We were excited about the ability to offer online access for our clients and customizing packing slips to match our clients look and feel.
From entering orders manually, importing CVS files, setting up a quick ftp connection to EDI, 3PL offered the most options for getting our clients orders in and ready to be processed.
We were concerned about a SaaS package and speed communicating but performace has been fast, up-time has been incredible and their support team is quick and knowledgable.
Attaching documents to transactions is a great feature and eliminates our need to save file cabinets full of receiving paperwork.
Upgrades being included is about the best you can ask for.

Cons

As a SaaS, linking to Worldship or other desktop shipping apps is not as direct as we would like but I think improvements are in the works for this as well.

Great solution for small to mid-sized 3PL providers.

Pros

The product has been a great solution for us as it's very inexpensive and uncomplicated to implement and run. Our core business is Foodserviec and we did not want to implement a full warehouse management package to run our 3PL business so we looked for SaaS solutions instead. 3PL Central was among the least expensive we found and it has all of the core functionality we need. Customer service/support are excellent. The product is being improved on constantly. Although not the most sophisticated package on the market it offers a strong value.

Cons

Ease of use is not what it could be because of a few shortcomings like not being able to alpha search product descriptions for order entry or reciever entry.

Support

Our distribution customers demand a warehouse management system that allows 24/7 visibility of their products, that allows them to send and receive orders electronically and is scalable to meet their future growth plans. The solution for us was 3PL. The 3PL system gives our customers outstanding features but still provides our company with a cost effective WMS solution. The ease of navigation for both customers and our users is a big plus. New features are always being added to upgrade the system. Customer support has been terrific. When we have a problem the courteous staff at 3PL has always responded quickly and professionally. I also like the small business attitude of "how can we get it done together so everyone wins". 3PL has been great for our company and I recommend it to any warehouse looking to upgrade their WMS system.

Pros

3PL offers us the following benefits:

24/7 web visibility for our customers.
Multiple EDI formats to exchange data.
Shiping and receiving e-mail notifications.
Ease of navigation for customers.
Simple order and receiving windows navigation.
UPS label integration.
On-going system upgrades at no charge.
Excellent reporting capabilities.
Bar coding capability.
Great customer service.

Cons

System needs to provide the capability to print pallet labels for inbound shipments with lot and shipment details.

System needs to be upgraded to provide more flexible billing schemes.

System needs to produce a distinct shipping tally for the consignee to sign at time of pick-up.

3PL's web-based system has kept our initial investment costs down. Our inventory accuracy went from 91% to 99%, allowing us to provide better customer service and avoid expensive errors. 3PL has also provided us with a solid checks and balances system, which was the driving force behind implementing a warehouse management system. We are automatically alerted on all receipts and shipments, so no inventory goes unaccounted for. No other solution out there is in the same league in terms of functionality, ease-of-use, and pricing. We love it!

Pros

- Easy-of-use and implementation across our different locations.
- Low initial investment costs.
- We can give customers an answer in a couple of seconds or they can log in and check themselves.
- Our customers like having the ability to log on and see their inventory status.

Support

I would definately recommend 3PL software to anyone in the 3PL business. We have been very pleased with the functionality, cost and customer support. Also, 3PL is always looking for ways to improve their product...most always without additional costs.

Pros

Web-based 3PL software is exactly what we need at Falcon. Being web-based, we are able to access our data easily, and our customers are able to view their transactions and inventory 24/7. This fact alone helps reduce the number of customer service calls for routine information. Another savings comes from the absence of upfront infrastructure expense required with site-based systems. Rather than ordering equipment and software and waiting for it to be installed and secured, we were up and running almost immediately. We would not choose anything other than 3PL software for our needs.

Cons

The only thing I could consider a con at this point is possibly the restrictions we currently have with running our shipping labels through 3PL. Although, there are some labels setup, we are not adequate for our needs, so we have a separate program set up where we enter and print our labels. I do know, however, that this issue is before the developers, and we anticipate upgrades in this area soon.

-Affordable yet robust.
-Direct access for our clients.

Cons

-Shipping module isn't great.

-No current Quickbooks billing integration (but on the plus side, this is something they are working on based on client input).

3PL is an integral part of the success of our business and the success for the future. We see 3PL as a true partner as we grow and develop.

Pros

Excellent for ease of use and training. 3PL format has allowed our employees to be much more effective for order entry, document preparation, and inventory management for our customers. Very good login capabilities for customers to gain real time information. Excellent customer support by 3PL staff.
Effective tool when courting new customers. Automatic emails and login for customers + ability to promote multiple warehouse locations is strong selling point.

Cons

Took some time to have new features requested for followup. Initial EDI implementation took longer than expected. This may have been more for the EDI partner than 3PL, but all tied together.
Report writer would be great enhancement feature we are looking for in the future.

Overall, I rate 3Pl Central as a very user friendly 3rd party logistics program. I tried another prior to selecting 3PL Central and I must say that, not only is the system mcu better, but the customer service far exceeds the prior company.

Pros

User friendly
Great Customer Support
Tracking / recording complete

Cons

Slow when processing large batches

I would highly recommend this to any warehouse that does not want to invest $50,000+. In fact we have found this online based software to be fully customizable with a little assistance from their development team so it does exactly what we need it too.

Pros

This web based warehouse management software is exactly what we needed. It keeps tract of our inventory very easily with sleek reports. They have a billing wizard that allows us to bill for in/out and project work. The system also has a built in bill of lading and allows for UPS/Fedex integration for shipping. So far this is the best technology investment we ever made. Keep up the good work 3PL central!

Cons

We will keep you posted.

Again, if you are looking into 3rd Party Logistic WMS software, You might want to give 3PL Central a spin to try them out. If you are in Forwarding, Warehousing, Trucking business, you should check it out this software.

Pros

This is great software if you are looking for Third Party Logistic WMS Software. I looked everywhere for software like 3PL Central for our Forwarder WMS Solutions, but not even we found what we are looking for, but it was perfect for our WMS operations.

Cons

If you need to modify any of the system functions, you need to pay for customization programming fee. But I guess it is very normal for SaaS software like this one. Only reason I gave 4 Star is I am sure every software needs more improvement and better solutions.
